Frank Collingwood (1933 – 2005)
It is with great sadness that we report that Frank Collingwood passed away on the 7th January 2005. Frank was a stalwart of the Shell Island fish-ins and would arrive complete with extended family. He hugely enjoyed fishing with his grandson and they would most often be found legering onto the sandy patches that are scattered amongst the rocks. He will be greatly missed by those of us who visited his tent and sat, chatted, shared a cup of tea (and the odd fag or two) whilst discussing the prospects for the bass fishing. God rest, Frank.
